Shop For A Cause On Etsy

Earlier this month, one of my favorite bloggers, Vicky of Rusty Rooster Vintage, wrote about some beautiful handmade butterfly cards that she purchased on Etsy.  Not just pretty stationary, these are cards for a cause. {Thank you so much for introducing me to this important issue, Vicky.} Friends, read that post for yourself here.


The cause is research into a rare genetic disorder called Cockayne Syndrome, which causes rapid aging in children, and for which there is no cure.


Scarlett Clay is the artist, and her son Knox has this devastating childhood disease.  She blogs about her art, life and shop here.





To see more of these unique handmade cards and to learn how you can help support this fund raising effort, visit the Etsy shop, Cards For Cockayne Syndrome, here.


And please consider taking a moment to visit the web site Amy and Friends ~ Cockayne Syndrome Support, here.

Thanks for reading, dear friends!

xoxo, Anita

Dear friends,
Thank you for taking the time to comment! ! I want this to be a space of free and open dialog, within the boundaries of respect and basic human kindness. Whether we are in agreement or not, all comments will be published so long as they meet that requirement.
